The Word - Your Painted Pout

“I saw you again, Aurora Lee .... Your painted pout and cold gaze were, come to think of it, very like the official lips and eyes of Flora, my wayward wife, and your flimsy frock of black silk might have come from her recent wardrobe.”

- Vladimir Nabokov's 'The Original of Laura'
